Inspired by the fluffy, homemade marshmallows recently bought at a market, Local Market Guide set about trying their hand at making them too! They are super easy and an impressive treat to share with friends.
1 ½ cups caster sugar
2 tablespoons gelatine powder
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 cups toasted coconut
Juice of ½ lemon (For flavouring. Other juices suitable too)
Icing sugar to dust
Line a large slice tin (26cm) with baking paper
Pour the coconut into a shallow baking dish and toast lightly in the oven on low (be careful it burns quickly)
Place the sugar in a saucepan with 2/3 cup hot water and cook over medium heat, stir constantly until sugar dissolves and syrup is clear
Place gelatine powder in a bowl and pour over 2/3 cup of cold water and whisk. Pour into the hot mixture and cook until gelatine has dissolved. Stir constantly. Cool to room temperature.
Pour into a large bowl and use electric beaters on high to beat for 5-10 minutes. The mixture should be thick and glossy. Stir in the vanilla essence.
At this stage, you can also add different flavours using natural juices (divide mixture into different batches). Experiment with lemon juice, orange juice, passionfruit etc. Approximately 1 tablespoon.
Pour mixture into the tin and leave to set for approximately 1 hour. Turn out the mixture and use a wet knife to cut.
Roll squares in toasted coconut or dust with icing sugar.
Our favourite Sydney market stallholder selling homemade marshmallows is ‘Sweetness the Patisserie’

That Great Market is a new monthly market on Sydney’s North Shore. Set in the leafy surrounds of East Lindfield, one could be almost mistaken for being at a country village market.
Each of the friendly stallholders have been carefully selected and many are both local and new to the market scene, adding to the sense of community that the market promotes. It is refreshing to see so many unique products from fashion and homewares to decorative pieces, art, children’s products and gourmet food.
A few of our favourite finds were: the super cute rope woven bunnies and dogs at Sanctuary Homewares, the handcrafted cheese & chopping boards from Urban Ledge, vintage accessories made with recycled retro buttons and other bits & bobs at Skimmy and the inspiring story and handcrafted products & fashion made with recycled fabrics by talented women & youths in India at The Possibility Project.
Outside stalls boast everything from plants and boutique gardening tools to gourmet produce including Spice Vine with their delicious marinades, Summerland Honey from the Blue Mountains and fresh New York style bagels from Brooklyn Boy Bagels. Most essentially there is good coffee and if that’s not enough to warm you up, there is mulled wine too!
Kids will also love the outdoor garden where they can enjoy story time on the grass (with popcorn!), leaving you to browse the market at leisure.
The family run market offers a little something for everyone. Great gift shopping and great for meeting a friend too!
